Matt,
Will selected assets count as sales towards getting a free subscription?

Good question, but no. Downloads in the Free collection do not count toward your statistics.

Not even the initial $5 sale to Adobe? It would certainly serve as a great incentive to submit more to the free collection. I submitted only a small portion of those selected. I would submit more knowing they count for at least one sale.

Looks that we are not getting bonus for subscription anymore so it doesn't really matter.

Happy to see that my eligible images have increased by around 50% over last year. Hopefully those accepted will also increase by 50%.

That would be my suggestion for improvement.  Of course, free DLs should not count towards free subscription, but it would be helpful to know the stats.   I.e  I nominated photo last yr, got 5 credits,  and now I see that photo had 10 free DLs over last 12 months.  So maybe I would not re-nominate same photo this time around estimating it has potential to earn more as "not free".  On the other side,  photo with 0-5 DLs in free collection is probably good candidate for re-nomination.

I think it helps with visibility, so I nominated a few.

you're assuming that 10 free DL would have translated to 10 paid DL

Yes, and that is big 'if'.  But it would give insight how certain assets are doing & help decide if they can make more than 5 dollars over 12 months

I did a quick check on what was eligible for nomination in my portfolio and I don't understand why items that have been downloaded within the last month and have lots of downloads are eligible.

Last time around, I thought it was only things that hadn't been downloaded in a certain amount of time that were eligible.

I'm not assuming; I checked several against my recent downloads list (by hand I would add; there are no ways to see downloads by date for a given image).

Have the rules for what assets can be included changed this time?

This is still the same Jo Ann. If a file was a top seller in the past 12 months it would not be eligible for nomination. In my account, I have some files eligible with hundreds of downloads in the lifetime of the image, but only a couple in the past year. The files that are eligible for nomination were determined last week, so it's likely there will be a few odd exceptions in which an image went on a download spree the past week and is still available for nomination. Please know that in those rare cases, when the nomination process is complete and the final selections are being made, those images will not be accepted. It's not in any of our best interest to pull content from the paid collection if it is trending towards consistent sales.

If you have a file or files, Jo Ann that seem to not align with what I just wrote, please send me an email with the specific file numbers and I'll look up their sales history to check them out.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward

Hi Mat,

several of my eligable files were only uploaded this year (2022), so they werent even online for 12 months... I dont remember that being the case last year. So, did the rules (4 or less sales withing the last 12 months) change after all?

Wasn't the last time a counter that showed you how many files you've selected?

There rule absolutely did change. I have images up for selection to the free gallery with just one or even 0 sales and not just a few, but actually several hundreds.

Hi Firn,

Can you confirm if they had several hundred downloads in the past 12 months? Most likely, as in my account, the vast majority of those downloads happened more than a year ago. If I'm mistaken, please email me the file number(s) directly so I can take a look: [email protected]

Thanks,

No changes in the selection process that I am aware of. Do those new files have a large number of downloads?

No, Mat, you misunderstood, or maybe I worded it poorly, sorry: I meant that I have several hundred images up for selection that only had one download or no download at all. And last year no imges with zero downloads were nominated,  but are nominated now, so something has changed in the nomination process, at least for me.

Oh, got it. I don't know what the exact criteria is to qualify other than they cannot be assets with good sales in the past 12 months. It sounds like your eligible files meet that criteria.

I think it's strange to that photos without any downloads are being nominated. How is Adobe deciding that a photo without any download is nominable?
Did we miss a sale or does Adobe see lots of views (which we don't know of) that would make the photo interesting for their free collection?

I have a few 0 download images that are eligible for nomination and I can't guess why they would be included - not uploaded in the past year. Most 0 download images are not included.

I have two recently uploaded images, each with 2 downloads. The one uploaded Feb 15th is eligible but the one uploaded March 7th is not.

This has no bearing on my decision - I do not wish to offer my images for free - but I think there are some very odd choices the system has made.

Matt,  You confirmed that downloads of free images do not count towards getting a free subscription.   But if I have 100 images accepted and Adobe pays $5 for each of those images, would it count as 100 sales toward a free subscription?
